Food Scraps

As of July 2020, food scraps are banned from the landfill in Vermont. We accept food scraps at all of our sites for $1 per 5 gallon bucket. We will then process them at our Lamoille Soil composting facility, where we prepare compost available for purchase to use in your garden in the spring.

You can also have a certified compost hauler pick up your food scraps, or you can compost at home. Some options for backyard/home composting include Green Cone Digesters, Soil Saver bins, build your own, or vermicomposting (composting with worms!).
